was a real problem. because it was never growth. it was always about this and that and detail. romney wasn't the issue. the issue was obama. it was the worst single recovery in the u.s. that is the issue. i think and i hope the republicans take that agenda, and i know that -- let me jus tell you personally, i know a lot of democrats who would like to get in that agenda as well. they want to lower rates, broaden the tax base. there are a lot of democrats want to do it as well. if we can get the agenda in there, we are in for a great couple of years. 2015 and 2016 could be really good years. lou: all that is required is the faith and patience. >> that's right. we have a lot to reach. lou: abundant, abundant.eing thank you for coming to join us. art laffer. up next, a horrific new townacr massacre spurring calls for more gun control. in the "chalk talk" we take a look at what is potentially one of the largest and mostloe one f important problems in ourblem it is not guns. the cost of mental health in so many dimensions - ♪ america! ♪ america! - ♪ god shed his grace on thee

president obama and mitt romney were set to speak there. >> how would you characterize how he's been handling the collective problems that we're seeing percolating across the middle east? >> well, i think that first of all, i think they've done pretty well in a very chaotic situation. the arab spring was always going to have ups and downs or bumps in the road or whatever you want to call it. in libya, the tragic situation of the lost of our ambassador and the other americans, it's worth pointing out a couple of things. first of all, most of the libyan people who were aware of what's going on like the united states, they like the fact that we aggressively supported them and their desire to replace the gadhafi regime and decades of control and repression and a move to a more democratic system. the president of libya has asked to meet with me. we're going to have a nice visit. i think tomorrow. there were libyans who lost their lives in that attack, trying to protect americans. and that is a different thing. i don't think -- that has, in my opinion, no relationship to what happened in i
massachusetts governor mitt romney. after first being declared the winner of iowa caucuses a ballot glitch was discovered and he had to share the win with rick santorum. even though romney went on to win decisive victories in key primary states eventually the republican nominee he emerged from the battle bruised. >> i don't see how a massachusetts liberal will do better. >> he is the worst republican in the country to put up against barack obama. >> reporter: romney's campaign saw several ups and downs but appearing confident and in command during the first debate romney threw president obama off his game with the president delivering a surprisingly shaky performance. >> the first debate sets the tone and can have the most impact. but, yeah, look this is a series. >> reporter: mr. obama regained his footing by the third and final debate and ultimately won re-election. >> the best is yet to come. >> reporter: 2012 also marked a milestone in implementation of president obama's health care law. in a 5-4 decision back in june the u.s. supreme court ruled the major crux of obamacare, the indivi
of sentences. two words from mitt romney reverb greated all the way through november. >> people who have come here illegally won't be able to find work and over time those people would tend to leave the country or self-deport. >> reporter: self-deportation by undocumented workers was not by itself responsible for romney's dismal showing by his sfpanics t it certainly greased the skids. and then there is this. >> there are 47% who are with him, who are dependent upon him whork believe that they are victims. >> reporter: romney called his remarks completely wrong. they also caused the deepest self-inflicted wound of the election. on the flip side, romney's vp day may have been the best of his campaign. the selection of paul ryan he can cited conservatives in a way romney himself had not. how many moments are there in an hour and a half. the president lost all of them in the first debate. the pictures tell the story of a man who phoned it in, panicking his supporters and providing an opening for romney. and finally, the top three moments of the election best described as history-making politics.
campaign rushed to talk about this as a political screen by mitt romney. and they didn't own up to the fact that there was a terrorist attack on 9/11. they didn't recognize it immediately as a terrorist attack. the media here have missed the story because we have allowed political reporters and not serious report -- reporters to conduct the investigation. >> some of those political reporters, they are serious people. finally what do you expect mrs. clinton will say she can get beyond this? >> i think that remains to be seen. we just don't know what secretary clinton knew, what she approved, did her political deputy protect her? did he keep information from her because he is a very political guy? clearly has been a loyal soldier to secretary clinton, so did he cover up? that's a huge question of whether or not her deputies kept things from her to protect her, or if she knew about these cables and she made the decision. we need to know these answers. >> those are the questions that the members of congress may or may not be asking when they have these hearings. rick, thank you for your time. h
, but the answer that both romney and obama gave was no. no military involvement. the no-fly zone is a stab toward military involvement, but not a full military environment. what would be your answer to a question? >> frankly, this is part -- some of the calculation that went into the intervention in libya was that if we intervene in the rea to libya they're already done this. it makes things -- that's a little bit too flippant. personally if i were in that position i would be in favor of a no-fly zone. i think so with the turks. look, you're doing the same thing. you are repeating history over and over again. and what i think is problematic is sending a certain caliber weapons top position which we don't know exactly who they are. that's also repeating a bad precedent. you don't want those weapons that to fall into the wrong hands. what happens to the 20,000 surface-to-air missiles that were supposedly communal, and -- the exit, the whole other answer to that, but yes. i would think that if you're going to follow that rationale, you know, ultimately the debt would make sense. safe havens. >> i wo
and not just between him and bent romney but a choice between the ideology and different approaches to government and different sets of divisions and values and everything he did in that timeframe he kept trying to tethered to this big idea and when i wrote to the book of course we didn't know how things would end up on november 6, 2012, but i looked at how she developed the governing strategy, and they're really culminated in november, so this is the back story to what happened in this presidential campaign. >> david korn, showdown is the most recent book and we are here at the national press club. >>> robert discusses the role that geography has played in shaping the defense and talks about the role that it plays in the future. this is about ten minutes. >> good evening, welcome and thank you for joining us. my name is richard fontaine. i'm the president for the center of new american security. it's a pleasure to welcome you all here to celebrate the publication of robert kaplan's new book the reason geography what they tell us about the coming conflict in the battle against the s

to make partisan hay on what happened in benghazi. i think mr. romney did it, shamefully during the campaign. and i think in times of crisis, we need to pull together as americans. our ambassador was killed and three other patriots were killed and i don't think either side should try to use it for partisan political purposes. i think this kind of gotcha politics really the american people are really turned off by it. i want to say this before this committee, that barack obama was no more responsible for what happened in benghazi than george w. bush was during 9/11 or ronald reagan was when more than 200 marines were murdered in beirut. it doesn't happen under anybody's watch. terrible things happen and we have to again try to fix them. i look at this report and the accountability review board is something that makes an attempt to do that. i don't care if the administration officials call it terrorism or didn't call it terrorism but i have seen things where president obama use the word terrorism the day after it happened. but that's not important. what's important is that there s
